Like a piece of cake

On the way back to the Strait of Gibraltar we had a nice talk with Judith Elger about seismic imaging and of course we don’t want to withhold that from you. Judith is a geophysicist and is currently working as a postdoc at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research in Kiel. In her project […]

Vibing on the seafloor

Eine deutsche Übersetzung? Gibt’s weiter unten In the next three articles we will take a closer look at seismic methods. Today we want to take look at seismic measurements at the seafloors. Today we talk to Bettina Schramm, geophysicist and PhD student at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research, about OBS (Ocean Bottom Seismometers), […]

Metal-Geochemistry meets Machine Learning

On October 10th, RV Maria S. Merian will embark on its 96th mission: to study the heterogeneity and complexity of topography, habitats and geochemistry of the Atlantic Ocean seafloor. We expect to find a diverse world, far more complex than what is often thought of when looking at the “Abyssal Plains”. A team of 12 […]

it ain’t the sound of silence

Wie gewöhnlich: für eine deutschte Übersetzung weit nach unten scrollen Hydroacoustics is an extremely important part of marine science. That’s why at least one person sits in the hydroacoustics laboratory every day of measurement. With its screen-plastered walls, the laboratory reminds a little bit of a spy center. It allows us to make sure that […]

Inside the labs

Usually on research cruises, scientists from different areas come together and join their forces. Each field requires labs with different tools and specific demands to work in. Talking about labs creates a picture of people in white coats and safety goggles handling dangerous fluids. However, only one of our labs is a real chemical lab. […]

70 out of 30

With the amount of scientist limited due to corona restrictions the work that can be done is also limited. Also, we had just 16 working days in the Labrador Sea despite being 5 weeks on board. These circumstances led to the prediction of just conducting 30 to maybe 40 CTDs during this cruise. At least […]
